    just curious to see what molds you guys dissapproved of. I love the character retrax but his articulation is poor. and prowl is great as well as silverbolt if you could pose their wings better. your thoughts opinions ect?

    Yeah, Retrax was like a Retard the way he was always clapping his chubby hands. He's my absolute least favourite simply because he's the only BW I don't like.

    Scarem. He's not bad but I just don't care for it. Injector doesn't deserve the hate though, imo. It's a really cool toy. I really like all the Beast Wars toys, so I don't feel there are any terrible ones (never had Retrax though...)

    Injector!!!! UGHHH

    If I never see one of those again it will be to soon, it just smacked of a designer who couldnt be bothered.

    Snarl.
    His launching tail isn't even powerful enough to let his body even clear it, and he can barely stand.
    Absolute crap.

    Another vote for (against) Injector. No redeeming features whatsoever.

    Man, none of those toys are all that bad. They don't appear on the show, so you can just say "Hey, Retrax like to clap his hands." That's characterization.

    Dinobot, though... If Mainframe hadn't done a show, the toy would stand on its own as being simply mediocre. You watch the show and then play with the toy, however, you get hit by your mom for swearing.

    Man, is is a tough one since none of the toys I have are particularly horrible and were mostly used items I bought off ebay so my gripes stem from them being loose, or the character sizes not being in preferable scale...I even like Injector and Transquito...hmmmm....

    I guess I'll have to say the original Rhinox. The robot mode is pretty bad.

    I've got to say, on purely color basis, Mutant Razor Claw is the worst. Whoever the designer was for that toy needs to learn what a wolverine looks like. For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about: the mutant razor claw is a beast wars toy that transforms from a green velociraptor (just fine) into a green wolverine (WTF?!) Who decided not to make the toy brown? The packaging even shows the figure in brown...
    as far as molds go...
    I'm not a huge fan of Torca. That mold was absolute trash. I think the transformation consisted of
    1) stand up on back legs
    2) open head
    3) twist arms around
    4) remove gun (optional)

    it's also ugly as all hell.

    Man, I love Torca. he looks great in both modes. My only complaint is all the gold plastic that loves to shatter.

    Transquito and Injector for sure. Retrax gets out of being crap for having a ball mode.

    You have made a powerful enemy this day, sir.

    Noctorro was great as a concept, but horrible in execution. There's nothing fun about wasting an hour of your life trying to lock those stupid wing membranes in place, keep him balanced, and not leave him in a pose that makes him look like a retard or begging for some spare change.

    Sure, Retrax was bad, but all the kids loved him whenever they needed a ball. :p  Actually, I'm a bit sad I never experienced his crappiness in person.
